A Few Brief Road Trips and Events

I mentioned that I would write about some of the things I did last week, and who am I to let anyone down, so here goes! :o)

Last Thursday, I traveled with my sister and dad to Springfield to look at houses for my now-grown-up sister. It's still weird to me that she is an adult (thought, technically, I guess she's been an adult since 21). In May, she graduated from MSU, and this fall she will be teaching business at Williard High School. We had a great day, and I was able to leave Caleb, Sarah, and Gabriel at home with Josh. Those of you familiar with nursing know that being away for 9 hours is unheard of...I did take a manual pump with me just in case I started to I needed to pump! But I was able to make it the entire day. It was a really nice mini-vacation so to speak. I love my children very much and always miss them. But sometimes mommies need to recharge!

** This just in: the seller accepted my sister's offer on the house she really wanted!

Then on Friday, Josh, the kids, and I went up to the St. Louis Zoo. I just love that place, and the kids always have a great time! My favorite is riding the train, and the Sea Lion show is fun, too.

Saturday I woke up at 4:00 am to get ready for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in St. Louis. My mom and sister spent the night at my house the night before, and we all loaded up in the car an headed out by 5:15 am. Gabriel went with us!

We met my Aunt Cathy just in time to watch her participate in the Survivor Processional. This is always an emotional experience, but I had many more tears this year as I watched her walk by. I hope to participate every year since it's a cause near and dear to my heart. My grandma also is a breast cancer survivor.

So there's the scoop. It was a busy but fun few days!
